Our Foundation Solutions
At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.
This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.
This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. To take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
Mold Testing and Removal Services
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Tullahoma area homes. A lot of homeowners don't realize how dangerous this fungus really is. This is something you need to get rid of immediately because it can cause a variety of serious medical problems, including: asthma attacks, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and more. Additionally, this dark green or black fungus can make your entire home smell very musty and un-welcoming. This can really take away from the natural charm and appeal of your home.
Causes of Mold Growth
When it comes to the growth and survival of this fungus, it is going to need only three things to live, which are water, organic materials to feed off of, and excessive humidity (moisture in the air). More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To make sure that the problem doesn't happen again, we can install our waterproofing and encapsulation systems to make sure there can't be any moisture or humidity. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
